Social Security disability trust fund set to run out

The Social Security program is designed to help people when they retire and also when they become too disabled to work. Funding for Social Security comes from two different trust funds, the Social Security Disability trust fund and the retirement trust fund. Many in Pennsylvania will eventually need to utilize the disability fund which the government keeps funded.

Hazmat situation injures maintenance worker

A hazmat situation caused by a chemical leak at a Philadelphia high school has left a maintenance worker hospitalized.

SSDI can help even young people who are eligible in Pennsylvania

The human body is an amazing and well-designed phenomenon of nature. However, the human body is not invincible and can eventually break down for one reason or another. This can be quite a problem if a disability prevents somebody from working and making a living while still young. This is why the government provides Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits in Pennsylvania.

Agency working to make construction safer

The office of the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration in Pennsylvania states that falls are the most common reason for fatal working injuries in the area's construction industry. OSHA has inspected 80 sites after fatal accidents over the last decade. These inspections revealed 42 of the accidents involved falls.

Need for disability benefits high for those with mental illness

For those in Pennsylvania who live with one or more forms of mental illness, finding and keeping a job can be a challenge. In fact, statistics suggest that as many as 80 percent of mentally ill people are unemployed. While many might assume that those without a job have chosen that path, the reality can be far more complex. In many cases, individuals who live with a mental health issue are eligible for disability benefits, which can offer a more stable financial future.

SSDI covers almost every worker in Pennsylvania

The Social Security system in the United States is an important part of economic protection for many people. The system was created almost 80 years ago to ensure that the citizens of the nation were protected against unexpected hazards and disasters that could threaten one’s financial security in Pennsylvania or any other state. In 1965, lawmakers decided to add Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), because long-term disability insurance on the private market was not providing affordable and adequate protection for workers.

The five most dangerous professions and what they pay

Pennsylvania workers in the farming industry may receive more money than the average American, but not without risk. Farmers, ranchers and agricultural managers were found to be among the top five most dangerous jobs in the U.S., and workers in this profession earn a median salary of $73,210. However, since these jobs may require more technical experience than some other, lower paid jobs, it has been speculated that workers in these positions would be receiving the same salary even if their jobs did not pose a higher risk of death.

Important rules for the Social Security disability process

Social Security is meant to help people who have been working when they find themselves in a time of need. Benefits can be used to help financially support oneself during retirement in Pennsylvania or in any other state. On the other hand, many times people will require benefits due to some type of disability. However, it is important to have a good understanding of the legalities surrounding Social Security disability benefits.
